Shift knob change!
You will need:
10x1.25 thread cutting die
Cutting wheel

You will need to cut your stock knob off unless you are some kind of monster body builder and can just pull yours up and off!

Tool for the job!

I did this so I could see where I was cutting so I didn't hit the shifter

This is what is really holding the knob on.

You can see the teeth in the shifter!

Ok, time to make some threads!

I used a 2" shifter ext that you can buy off Ebay. I like haveing my shifter up high but it also helps with the rev. If you do not want to use an ext then you will need to trim the rev top so it will not hit the new knob.

Have fun!

Here's a few of my DIY Guides -

Nissan Cube Tail Light Bulbs Replacement

Nissan Cube Head Light Bulbs Replacement

Nissan Cube 1.8L Oil & Filter Change

Nissan Cube Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Nissan Cube Front Brake Pads Replacement

Getting to the tail light bulbs and also the cabin air filter were both more tricky than I had expected. I couldn't believe that you have to remove 9 screws just to drop the glove box. Once you know how to do either procedure, it only takes about 5 minutes more to complete than on other cars.

This is my second post in two years. Got sidetracked, bought a Sonata, stuff happened. In any event, I hope this is the right place to post this. I got a billet grille set for my 2013 Cube. Top grill was easy. Middle slot instructions said to take off the "cover" that was under the car (five bolts and just as many clips.) Nonsense! I had a friend take a look. He inserted the grill, reached up behind it, latched the L-shaped hooks on, and while I screwed, he held the lock nuts in position with a pair of pliers. Thanks. Ron
